Elden Ring - Full Millicent Questline (complete Guide) All Choices, Endings, And Rewards Explained
Millicent is an NPC in the Elder Ring and has an important quest line involving galleries and millennia, all of which will be covered in this article. As usual, useful timestamps can be found.
How to start millicent's quest (where to find gowry)
It's just south of the town of Celia. He'll task you with finding an unalloyed gold needle from the swamp of Aeonia.
Where to get unalloyed gold needle (commander o'neil location)
The needle is held by Commander O'Neal, and you can find him to the southeast of the inner Aeonius Site of Grace. The best advice I can give for this boss is to be prepared to deal with Scarlet Rot and bring along a tough spirit summon to tank O'Neill's attacks.
Second gowry interaction (giving unalloyed gold needle)
Once you've bested O'Neill, bring the unalloyed gold needle to Gowry; in turn, he'll give you the secret to opening the seals throughout Celia , which is that you'll need to hop along the rooftops to reach and light the three beacons at the top of three towers.
How to open the seals in sellia
This isn't a necessary step to completing Millicent's questline, but if you haven't done it already, you might as well. After giving the gallery the unalloyed gold needle, reload the area and return to him to get the repaired version of the needle. Keep speaking to him to trigger the next step of the quest, which is to bring the needle to Millicent.
Where to find millicent (and how to give her the unalloyed gold needle)
She's located at the church of the plague to the north-east of Gauri shack. Sit down at the nearby site of grace and Millicent will be back on her feet. I speak with her and go through all her dialogue. She'll reward you with the prosthesis wearer's heirloom talisman, which raises dexterity by five.

Sit at the site of grace, and Millicent will move on to her next location, which is down by the gallery shack.
Where to get valkyrie's prosthesis (shaded castle walkthrough)
Find Millicent there and speak through all of her dialogue. Then reload the area and Millicent will move on to her next location. Gowry will now sell you his pest-based spells. To continue Millicent's questline, we'll need the Valkyrie prosthesis.
It's located on the Altus Plateau at the Shaded Castle. You can reach it by traveling directly north from the grand lift of Dectus and making your way through a ravine. The Shaded Castle is a neat location with lots to explore, but for the purposes of this guide I'll just be showing the path to the Valkyrie's prosthesis starting from the exterior of the castle.
If you didn't see her last time, Millicent can be found standing a short distance to the northeast. Approach her and offer up the Valkyrie's prosthesis afterwards. Make sure to speak through all of her dialogue, then travel to the far north side of the Altus plateau all the way to Dominiullah windmill village.

You'll need to make your way through the village and defeat the godskin apostle at the end. At first, he's a tad difficult, but nothing a strong spirit summon can't handle.
Defeating the godskin apostle will reward you with the god skin peeler and a scouring black flame incantation. A new sight of grace will also appear nearby. Rest on it, and Millicent will appear with a new prosthesis fitted to her arm, or lack thereof. Be sure to speak through all of her dialogue to progress the quest.
How to get to mountaintops of the giants (rold medallion)
Now her next location will be up on the mountaintops of the giants, next to the ancient snow valley ruins. The Sight of Grace: In order to access the mountaintops, you'll first need to acquire two of the great runes. I recommend getting the ones from Godric and Ranala. After defeating Morgoth, the omen king at the elden throne, after doing all of that. Melano will give you the rolled medallion, which you can use to take the grand lift of the world up to the mountaintops.
Where to find millicent after windmill heights/village (ancient snow valley ruins)
From there, it's a short distance north to reach the ancient snow valley ruins, where you can find and speak with Millicent. This is actually an important checkpoint for Millicent's quest.
If you don't complete her quest up to this point and speak with her before initiating a certain ritual with Melana at the forge of the giants, then you may not be able to complete Millicent's questline. And I'll put this out there as a general tip: killing the fire giant and performing the ritual with Melano will close off access to many questlines in the game, so avoid doing it until you've tackled any quest lines that are important to you.
Okay, moving on to.
Very brief outline of how to reach prayer room in miquella's haligtree
To complete the final stages of Millicent's quest, we'll need to make our way to Nicholas Haluktree.
Where to find millicent after ancient snow valley ruins (prayer room)
Once you've arrived at the halak tree, you'll need to make your way through it until reaching the prayer room site of grace, which is after defeating Loretta, Knight of the Howard Tree.
Make sure to defeat the clean-rot knight outside of the prayer room before entering, as it might put Millicent in danger if you don't. Defeat the tree spirit to progress Millicent's quest with two summoning signs appearing nearby. We're not at the end of Millicent's quest line quite yet, but this is the important decision-making moment of it.
The gold summoning sign will have you assist Milson in combat against four of her sisters. The red summoning sign will have you challenge and betray Millicent instead.
Assist millicent rewards (rotten winged sword insignia and miquella's needle)
On top of that, you'll later be able to get Mikala's needle and a somber ancient dragon smithing stone. After aiding Millicent, you can speak with her for some final dialogue, then reload the area and return to her to retrieve the unalloyed gold needle. As a side note, be careful not to jump or fall on her, as doing so will kill her and prevent any further interaction.
Fortunately, you will still get the unalloyed gold needle even if you do that by accident.
Betray/challenge millicent rewards (millicent's prosthesis talisman)
On the other hand, successfully betraying and defeating Millicent will reward you with the millisense prosthesis talisman, which raises dexterity by five and boosts the damage of successive attacks, although to a lesser extent than the rotten winged sword insignia.
As far as I can tell, you will not be able to get Mikala's needle or the legendary somber smithing stone if you betray Millicent. When you return to this area after choosing the betrayal path, Millicent will have bloomed into a scarlet flower at this point.
